The Wedding Series: Part I

I'm sitting here in disbelief as our two year wedding anniversary is just a few days away. As this milestone quickly approaches, I realized I never fully shared an inside look at our wedding details with you. I shared our engagement pictures and a mini recap of our wedding, but never a detailed look, lessons learned or recommended vendors, which I plan to do over the course of the next week.

So here's Part I...


Unlike most girls, it wasn't about the dress for me. It was about the smaller details that come together to create major impact. In particular, I was so excited to pin down plans for the stationery and print materials. In fact, I had an entire Pinterest board dedicated to just stationery ideas. Giggle. It's okay. I know I have a pretty paper problem.

After weighing all my options and scouring Etsy, I selected Wiregrass Weddings out of Alabama for most of our print pieces. Hands down, they offer the widest selection of unique wedding programs. Our wedding program ended up being one of my most favorite pieces. It was quite the booklet, but I didn't mind, and I'm pretty sure our non-Catholic guests appreciated the reading material.

My dear cousin even had each page of our program framed to create one custom keepsake. It's currently hanging in our main hallway and I smile each time I see it.

Laurie at Wiregrass Weddings also created additional pieces for our reception. She produced coordinating menus, table numbers and other directional signage.

I purchased our monogrammed cocktails napkins from Confetti Grey. I have to say... our leftover napkins became a timeless addition to our bar cart!

Lastly, short on remaining budget, I designed and printed the escort cards myself. I repurposed scalloped note cards from the dollar bins at Michael's. I was thrilled with how they turned out. (Nothing like a little Microsoft Word magic!)

It's funny how something so simple as paper can make you so happy. I look back at these details and am just as tickled as ever.
